Keeping it interesting

In Transient Spaces on May 15, 2009 at 12:18 am

After reading Jenny’s post about the problem of “falling flat” around the 2-5 minute mark I’m trying to explore ways to keep it exciting.

Frasier also mentioned the fact that if you have a talking heads documentary, you better hope those heads are interesting. My documentary is interview based. And as I’ve been editing I’ve realised having person after person giving their opinion could get a bit monotonous.

I’m going to try and inject it with photos, short video clips and music to stop it slipping into a drone of voices.

I’ve decided to add a commentary to guide the viewer and make transitions clearer. Also it will help to break up the interviewers responses.
